traditional ‘coverage’ model of learning threatens to become more
and more inefficient and impractical, as the sheer size of the
‘body of knowledge’ needing to be absorbed necessitates a different
style of learning.
Contemporary learning methods will
place increasing emphasis on collective work,
knowledge-sharing and communication, as well as on refining
analytic thought and decision-making processes.
In the first module of this series, Learner-centred teaching: Part 1, we looked at
modifying current methods of both teaching and learning to
suit learner-centred approaches.
In this module, we will discuss an alternative
teaching-learning process: problem-based learning. This
process, with its innate constructivist character, is of
particular importance to the holistic approach in psychiatry
training and practice.
